Drivers show plenty of flair at the LoanMart Madera Speedway By
While taking the lead position in a race can certainly be a difficult task for drivers, the real challenge is
having the composure, patience and knowledge to maintain it especially in a very competitive division.
On Saturday night (July 26, 2014) at the LoanMart Madera Speedway, seven drivers found themselves in
that particular situation and all of them came out victorious including Matt Erickson, who won the Open
Late Model Series 100-lap headliner main while drivers in the Open Hobby Stocks, Legends of the Pacific,
MST's, Toyota Sedans, 4-Bangers and WSRA Mini Cup also claimed big wins after the establishing
themselves in the front of their respective races.
Despite having a huge lead ahead second place finisher Emma Tucker, Erickson wasn't going to take
anything for granted.
"I was getting told to slow down to save my tires but you just have to go out hard every lap," Erickson
explained to the Speedway fans after dominating the race. "It's a lot fun and I worked my butt off on this
car. I've been working on this car for the last two months, day and night up until 2 a.m. We put new tires on
it and I just want to thank everybody that comes out and helps me at my house or at the track."
Erickson trailed early in the race as Ryan Hart led for the first nine laps before a spinout by top qualifier
Jim Putman (15.625) forced a caution. On the Lap 9 restart, Erickson passed Hart to get into first.
After another restart on Lap 16, Erickson pulled ahead of Hart to stay in first.
While Erickson took the lead, Hart didn't go away and remained in second place through the first 50 laps
with Brian Herzog and Tucker following behind in the third and fourth positions as the cars rode back to
After returning to the track to complete the rest of the race, Erickson once again took off like a rocket-ship
and gradually increased his superior lead.
With Erickson clearly ahead of the rest of the 14-car field, Tucker, Hart and Herzog were next in line.
With less than 10 laps to go, Hart's car began to heavily spark flames which prompted him to stop after

In a once-a-year LoanMart Madera Speedway race that runs 70
laps longer than the circuit's norm, it's undeniable that absolutely
anything can happen.
Such an adage was more true than ever Saturday night during the Gerhardt Classic 100-lap United States
